Tom Hardy will reunite with his “Inception” co-star Cillian Murphy when he joins the cast of the second season of the BBC’s 1920s gangster drama series “Peaky Blinders”.
Hardy will play a charismatic leader who presents a unique opportunity to Tommy Shelby (Murphy) in the upcoming six episode season which sees the Shelby family expand their empire. Filming begins later this month ahead of a Fall premiere.
Steven Knight, who created the series and will write all six episodes, worked with Hardy on the acclaimed art house film “Locke” due in theaters this year. While there’s other voice actors in that film, Hardy is the only one on the screen for the movie’s entire runtime.
